The following facts are given for the
information of inquirers:
The monthly bulletin erf the socialist
party is published free for distribution
to the members of the party. Two or
three years ago an/ attempt was made to
secure the second class mailing rate for
it so a3 to send it direct to each mem
ber. This attempt was unsuccessful. It
is therefore shipped in bulk to the local
and branch secretaries who pass it out
to the members. The number of copies
a secretary can use for actual distribu
tion among the members is limited to
the members who attend the meetings.
This is usually less than half the total
number of members on the roll. The
total number of bulletins printed each
month is therefore less than half the
total membership of the party. The
largest number printed in any one month
[ was in the present month, September,
the number being 39,000. Any local or
j brench secretary who is not receiving as
many as he could use for actual distri
bution among the members can have the
number increased by writing to the na

tion price of fifty cents per year is

The socialist party does, however,
pledge itself to die following bnsio prin
1. The interests of humanity are anil

worth while, Bhould rightfully have and
enjoy everything worth while.
3. Th(> nominees of the socialist party
will, if elected, do everything in their

4. The socialist candidates belonging
to a class that knows by bitter experi

will, if elected, steer clear of wasteful
expenditures and economize wherever
and whenever economy shall be practic
able without detriment to those who toil.
5. Unlike tho old parties whose plat

only the worker, wastes no words on the
exploiters of labor or tho manipulation

will vote the socialist ticket and place
in office members of the only useful
class—the class that creates the wealth
of the world.

.101 IV M. WORK,
September 27, 1912.
To the National Executive Committe:
Comrades —The following communica- "*•
tion has been received from L. K. Katter- ,
feld, manager of the Lyceum depart-.
ment, with request that it be trans
mitted to you:
"The Hillquit motion is untimely. The
certainty of fierce opposition by the
speakers to the autocratic 'examination'
of one socialist by another; the certainty
of violent disturbances within the party
if speakers are displaced at this time,
no matter what the ostensible cause;
the certainty of resignations by speak
ers and cancelling of contracts by locals
—these are worth consideration, but the
chief objection to the Hillquit motion is
IT IS OUT OF DATE.
"The ship is a thousand miles from
shore on a winter voyage full of perils.
Comrade Hillquit proposes to stop her
on the high seas to examine into the
competency of the crew.
"Since I am held responsible for the
| Lyceum, I protest most emphatically
1 that the time for such dickering and
fooling is PAST. Every possible facil
ity for passing upon the merits of the
speakers was placed before the executive
committee LAST SUMMER and Com
rade Hillquit was not present.
"The Lyceum work is now too far on
its way to make such an interruption""""
possible. Comrade Hillquit must realize
that besides being a propaganda enter
prise the Lyceum department is a large
business institution with obligations to
meet. Our present liabilities are over
$15,000. Most of this is due within 30
days. We hope to pay it out of the reg
ular receipts of the Lyceum department
without drawing on the national treas
ury. If this motion is adopted, it can
not be done. Locals will not send money
if there is uncertainty regarding speak- ,
ers. But the bills will not wait. They .
are due; not next year, but NEXT
"Our contracts with the speakers in
volve over $20,000 additional for which i
we are legally liable nnd morally re-,'
sponsible. These contracts were made
in good faith after the executive com
mittee's action had been tacitly approved
by the national committee. Most of,,the \' t
speakers have already made considerablei
preparation. Even the humblest among*
them should now have the opportunity
to MAKE GOOD before being 'blacklist
ed.' ' .^:
"Furthermore, the motion is impos
sible of application because of lack of
time. Suppose the 'special* examiner
could investigate two lecturers every
day. It would take a solid month for
i the inquisition. Since many of the lec
turers are constantly on the road, the
